London, Feb 2 (ANI): English footballer Wayne Bridge is devastated after learning about Chelsea skipper John Terry's affair with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel, according to his pals.
The 29-year-old Manchester City left back is said to be repeatedly calling up his former love Perroncel - as he tried to recover from her betrayal with his England team-mate.
"He just can't seem to get over it. The more John's betrayal sinks in, the worse it gets for him. He's absolutely in pieces, totally distraught," the Sun quoted one of the Bridge's pals as saying.
Terry, 29, was best of pals with Bridge when they played together at Chelsea.ridge and Perroncel, who have a four-year-old son together named Jaydon together, split last summer after three years of relationship.
Meanwhile, Perroncel has sparked a bidding war after reportedly being offered 250,000 pounds for her side of the Terry story. But she insisted she was doing it only for the sake of Jaydon.
She has hired celebrity publicist Max Clifford, and met him for talks yesterday at the plush Weybridge Health Club in Surrey.
"It's a story that everyone's talking about and it's a story that obviously all the papers and the television networks are very, very keen to find out what the truth is," said Clifford, 66.
"If the allegations in the papers are true, then of course it's going to be very damaging to John Terry, particularly from a personal point of view. The 250,000 pounds offer is just the latest bid. I am in negotiations on her behalf," he added.
However, he refused to give any details about what went on between Vanessa and Terry.
He said: "All I'm prepared to say is that she's known John a long time and obviously I think during that time they've become very close friends.
"Anything more than that, I wouldn't want to say at this stage. It's really for her to decide what she wants to do." (ANI)
